TechCrunch's Jon Russell wrote about Branch8 in an article published this week:
"Branch8, which is based in Hong Kong, is part of Y Combinator's current Summer 2015 class. It opened the doors to its service on an invite-only basis back in May, but today it is now publicly available to all merchants. Chan told TechCrunch that, right now, Branch8 has nearly 1,000 sellers (and over 600,000 products) who are processing over $1 million in sales per month on its platform.
Beyond consolidating the basic processes beyond selling via multiple services — Amazon, Lazada, Rakuten, eBay and Jumia are among the initial platforms supported — Branch8 also provides analytics to track traffic, it automates price checking and product migration, and connects to third-party logistics services. Those value-adds, [Branch8 CEO Elton] Chan said, are where it believes it can really stand out for merchants.
'Our differentiator is analytics,' he told TechCrunch in an interview. 'Few tools track traffic via SKU. While our price tracking tool and the convenience of migrating to new platforms, this process is very manual, are specifically designed to meet merchants’ pain-points.'"
